Are you moving to the Baltimore area for the first time, and in search of housing near Johns Hopkins University? Finding housing that meets your needs can be a challenge!


Here are some tips to assist you in your search:


  • If possible, visit Baltimore in advance and view properties before you commit to a lease.

  • You may want to commit to a short-term lease if you are unfamiliar with the area.

  • If you do not plan to bring a car, we encourage you to look for housing on the Johns Hopkins shuttle route or other easy to access public transportation. Hopkins View is within walking distance to the hospital.

  • The University does not inspect properties; students are thus responsible for determining suitable housing.

  • Contact a representative on the Neighborhood Contact List to find out more about the areas you are interested in (list is located on the off-campus housing website).

  • Average rent in Baltimore (in a student’s price range) is $800-$1,500 per month. This may or may not include utilities.

  • Please use the Apartment Checklist as a resource before signing a lease.

  • The Johns Hopkins University does not endorse any of the property owners/companies listed on the off-campus housing site or any other company, products or services by virtue of making this service accessible to the JHU community.



Companies and owners are responsible for reporting their information fairly and accurately. The Johns Hopkins University does not endorse any of the companies and owners listed above or any other company, products or services by virtue of making this service accessible to the JHU community. Please contact the Housing Office if you have any additional questions, 410-955-3905 or jhmihousingoffice@jhmi.edu.
